    TIE Aggressor didn't get points reduction

    If they remember the ship exists, they might have been keeping 6 with ion turrets off the table. Which makes sense, honestly. That does not sound super fun to fly against.

    Are card packs going to be a thing?

    The unfortunate truth is I played maybe two games with my CR-90 and one with my Raider. None with my C-Roc. The fact that they aren't supported (yet?) in 2nd Ed. doesn't really affect their playtime much... I do want to see some Epic support sooner rather than later but I'm not super optimistic. I don't think it's very high on their priority list and the pace of releases doesn't leave much time for development of Epic. Hope they can get it right when it happens though.

    Are you referring to hyperspace legal or the fact that not all 1.0 pilots have been converted? I'm not holding my breath for Fel's Wrath.

    Wave 4 Announcement

    But what is the "best" way for us to get those new cards? New B-wing sculpt? Shut up and take my money. Going to be hard to only buy 2. Pack all the new stuff in there and I'm happy. But I don't want to buy an 8th Kihraxz when they come out to get a new title etc. I'm afraid FFG is building this airplane while they fly it and I'm real curious how they plan on getting new content to players that only fly OT ships.

    Wave 4 Announcement

    It's probably good that we are not getting new content with the re-released ships but I hope they figure out a way to put out new content for the rereleased ships. Not sure how they will do that though. If they had some new fancy crew included in the Falcon reprint, I would get seriously grumpy. I don't need another Falcon model. The B-wing though? I'm down for two of those. (Actually sold 2 of my custom painted B-wings so need two more anywho.)

    Why does the YT-2400 still cost so much?

    The designers giving the 2400 a built-in four dice primary was the worst possible news for Dash fans. It makes the ship almost impossible to price correctly. I expect the final price point will be lower than where it sits now but not by a whole lot.
  7. They can focus and then purple evade yes? The ability to token stack on 3 evade dice is pretty stinking good.

    Adv. Sensors : article or points list mistake ?

    I don't think Advanced Sensors should ever be cheaper than 8 points. Unblockable actions should be a premium. I would raise the price on high initiative more then lower it for the other end.

    Adv. Sensors : article or points list mistake ?

    The addition of initiative based scaling is one of the most exciting parts of the points adjustments to me. I hope Advanced Sensors gets scaled pricing eventually. It definitely deserves it. Although, as a huge B-wing fan, I'm probably not impartial here. Overall, I'm just super hyped by the points adjustments overall.

    This was on my wish list but I really hope they do make Advanced Sensors variable like the article said. AS on my I2 B-wings can be so much fun.

    They're up!!!

    Barely even functional for me. Raithos has to get a small army of keyboard monkeys to update his database.

    Illegal Squad at Phoenix / Trip Upsilon (no relation)

    My hatred of Dash is justifiable again... Yay?

    Power and Profit

    If we get spinning-kiddie Anakin in a Naboo fighter, I'll cop to the whole prequels=clone wars thing. The two factions entering the game did not exist in episode 1. We are getting Clone Wars factions. It just so happens that two of the prequels were occasionally centered on the clone wars. When they weren't about sand and parliamentary procedure.

    Episode 1 is part of the Clone Wars? Guess I missed that. OK.
  15. I think the answer needs to be a major cost increase for any initiative 5 or 6 pilot that can reposition or carry torpedoes. And an extra tax for any that can double reposition or double mod their torpedoes.

    Power and Profit

    There is a reason FFG has consistently referred to the new content as Clone Wars era. It's from the cartoon, not the movies. Granted the cartoon series was uneven but it's a durn sight more popular overall than the movies.

    Power and Profit

    No plans to buy any of the Clone Wars stuff. Trying to decide if I'll need to track down Gas Clouds. Who benefits the most from Gas Clouds? Don't have to worry about Vultures or Mining Guild TIEs so much. Curious what (if any) the penalty is for flying through them. Whelp, here's hoping enough players buy multiple squadron packs to make the gas clouds cheap. Or maybe a Rebel squadron pack will drop in the next wave?

    Are you an X-Wing cheater?

    The one that gets me is meticulously marking a ship. Carrying out my maneuver. Maybe taking a minute or so to line up a bump properly. Placing everything just so... And then knocking a ship over as I remove the last template. I even bump ships on vassal when I try to select them.

    What ships should see changes to their upgrade bars?

    Do we really expect the app to be able to handle such a complex operation?

    What ships should see changes to their upgrade bars?

    When I get called a forum whiner for calling out Redline, it's time to call it a day. Good gravy, you're gonna defend Redline? Srsly?

    What ships should see changes to their upgrade bars?

    What symbols? Upgrade slots were intentionally left off the cards to allow exactly these sorts of changes. Best example would be to remove the sensor slot from the Punisher. That does a lot to rein in some of the bonkers combos without touching points.

    What ships should see changes to their upgrade bars?

    Pretty much my exact list. Nice job! Although the gunner on phantom will be pretty much useless until new gunners come out.

    Already frothing at the mouth for that Wave 3 Clone Wars stuff

    Crazy aussies call Sprite "Lemonade"

    What if FFG changed First Player to random?

    I'm fine with the random first player option IF we see some price increases as well. Take a hard look at any list that is competitive at 185 points and give it a 15 price hike spread out over the pilots and upgrades as seems appropriate. Bidding to move last is super-dumb but at least it forces those Ace players to tie 7-10% of their points behind their back.

    Pick the date: Points Release ???

    Couldn't you just as easily say that the unique pilots are undercosted? It's just a point of view thing. Decreasing the generics is much more likely to create unintended consequences than an across-the-board increase for all high initiative pilots. Not sure FFG would be willing to go that route but making the aces actually pay for their initiative is going to be required before generics see widespread use.
